I HATE MOUNTAINS, BUT AT THE SAME TIME I LOVE PUSHING MY LIMITS

I am a rather "roller/backpacker" cyclist, long rides alone do not bother me. My favourite type of terrain is undoubtedly the long flat plains, where I can best express my power...

I LIKE THE FEELING OF FREEDOM THAT YOU GET WHEN YOU RIDE AND THE POSSIBILITY OF DISCOVERING NEW PLACES

I am a lover of sporting adventures of all kinds, from running to cycling. I like the feeling of freedom that you get when you ride, the possibility of covering a lot of kilometres in a short time and discovering new places...

I'M A PERSON LOOKING FOR ADVENTURES, I ALWAYS TRY TO FIND ANY EXCUSE TO EXPERIENCE A LONG ROUTE

I'm a person looking for adventures, I love to spend long hours on the bike or even running, I always try to find any excuse to experience a long route. It's incredible what it feels like to ride or run for so many hours, I would love to ride the longest routes in Europe...

I DEMAND A LOT FROM MYSELF BUT ALWAYS WITH GOOD SENSE...AND WITH A SMILE ON MY FACE

I'm a person who always laughs and really enjoys doing sports, I demand a lot from myself but always with good sense...and with a smile on my face. I've been cycling for a short time but I've really been hooked, it' s nice to share good moments with my friends...

IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW LONG OR HOW FAST YOU PEDAL, THE ONLY IMPORTANT THING IS TO HAVE FUN

I love cycling because it allows me to combine my two passions: nature and travel. I love visiting new places, and biking is the best way to do that. "For Fun Not For Fame" are perhaps the words that perfectly describe my experience in these 5 years of cycling, because I conceive cycling as a way of life, the best way to disconnect and feel alive...

I AM HAPPY TO EXCHANGE IDEAS WITH OTHER BIKE ENTHUSIASTS. MY MOTTO IS “ WE RIDE UNDER THE SAME SKY”

I have been cycling a lot since I was a child. But my great passion for cycling only started in my mid-20s, as I had played baseball very actively for several years before that.  I am an absolute pleasure-biker, outside is freedom, cycling is premium time. With me there is no pigeonhole thinking, Gravel, MTB, Road whether Fatbike or E-bike. Everybody is welcome...

CYCLING HAS TAUGHT ME THAT SLOPES HAVE TO BE EARNED, THAT YOU CAN REALLY ENJOY THEM ONLY AFTER YOU HAVE STRUGGLED ON THE CLIMBS AND THAT FATIGUE IS ALWAYS REWARDED

I rode a racing bike for the first time less than two years ago and since then I have never abandoned it; when I can I try to take it with me wherever I go, to meet new places together. I ride to overcome myself every time, to feel free and to enjoy the open space; if nature surrounds me even better. I love cycling in company, but also immersed in my thoughts...

THE “FUN” ON THE BIKE AND TO SHARE THE BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS IS MORE IMPORTANT TO ME THAN CHASING TIMES UP A CLIMB

Cycling for me is the perfect way for me to take me to beautiful places, share a nice time with friends and explore new areas. I love long distance rides, challenging climbs and the beauty to do all this just with my own strength...

I'D LIKE TO MOTIVATE PEOPLE TO START CYCLING VIEWING MY PICTURES. "GOOD EXAMPLE GIVES POSITIVE MOTIVATION"

My passion for cycling started more than 6 years ago and since then it has been part of my life and my family’s life of course. I got the idea of this new "life" where I am planning to cycle through the Alps and get to the top of these most famous gravel mountain passes. I'd like to introduce you to the other side of the mountains and motivate people to start cycling viewing my pictures...

CYCLING IS A WAY TO EXPLORE LANDSCAPES WITHOUT LIMITS, EXCEPT YOURS. I TRY TO PUSH FORWARD MINE AND IMPROVE AT EVERY RIDE

As a cyclist, I am still a newbie. I started cycling a bit more than one year ago. As I always wanted to ride a bike and my boyfriend is a cyclist, it was the perfect activity to share good times together. After only a few months on the bike, he took me on a bike trip. We did 1000 km in 10 days. Since then, there is not a day where I don’t think about cycling...

I AM A CYCLIST WHO REPRESENTS THE FREEDOM OF CYCLING. I AM AN INDIVIDUAL WHO REVELS IN HIS INDIVIDUALITY

I would consider myself a cyclist who adores his freedom and not being confined to time schedules, meeting people to enjoy a ride, I am one that prefers riding into a headwind alone, just hearing the sound of my breathing and alone with my thoughts. If one had to label my riding style I would say I was a Rouleur, and I enjoy riding long distances, I try to average at least 500km per week...

I’M NOT THE TYPE OF AMBASSADOR THAT ONLY DID IT TO GET THE PRODUCT. I TRY TO COLLABORATE TO DEVELOP THE BEST PRODUCTS POSSIBLE

I’m an Enduro and DH rider, with several important results on the board. I work with many international TV shows doing reports and sport programs, including my world training camps, that I organize in several countries always with magazines and TV on it...

ABOUT CYCLING I LOVE THE FATIGUE AND THE GREAT SENSE OF FREEDOM THAT THIS MAGICAL SPORT ALLOWS US TO LIVE

I work in the world of transport as an express courier, and in between I try to be a level athlete, transforming the bike as the first job and the courier as the second. I describe myself as a precise and meticulous cyclist. I try to get the most out of my body and I work very hard to reach it without leaving anything to chance. I'm always looking for the limit, which I haven't found yet, that's why I always have a thousand stimuli and motivations to do better...

CYCLING IS MY BIGGEST HOBBY. I LOVE DISCOVERING NATURE AND RIDE WITH FRIENDS

I am living in Mataró, Spain, for 6 years already but I am originally from Russia. I am an illustrator, working at Toptal. Cycling is my biggest hobby and I spend a lot of time on the saddle. Usually I ride about 300km per week with 4/5k m D+  and 10/15h. About cycling I like mostly discovering nature and ride with friends...

CYCLING NOT ONLY KEEPS ME FIT, BUT IT IS ALSO A HUGE MENTAL BENEFIT AND TAKES ME TO INCREDIBLE PLACES

I’m a laid bike rider. I started with track/fixed gear riding with the urge to be fast and competitive but throughout the years I’ve been cycling I’ve realised the fast you go, the more you miss. I’m here for a good time, not a fast time! Bike packing has really opened my eyes to what’s out there and the possibilities a bike offers...

WHY DO I LOVE CYCLING? BECAUSE IT REPRESENT THE HIGHEST EXPRESSION OF THE SPORT: "YOU CAN'T SAY I'M GOING TO PLAY CYCLING"

As a cyclist I am a "rouleur-climber", I love long and gentle climbs, the ones that with the right gear I could do even 40 kilometres without difficulty. I'm passionate about blogging and social networks and in my spare time I try to give advice to all cycling fans like me, on Instagram and on my blog...

OMAR DI FELICE PRESENTS THE NEW ALLROAD FROM SELLE SAN MARCO

Hello and welcome, everyone, A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of testing the new Allroad from Selle San Marco, a product developed specifically for the world of Gravel. I fell in love with Selle San Marco many years ago and since then I have never changed brands. I’ve had the chance to ride with these products on all types of terrain as I’ve travelled the world, and I’ve never had any problem whatsoever. Rather, besides the purely technical and structural aspects, in my opinion even aesthetic concepts are essential when it comes to this historical brand.

ALESSANDRO TONELLO: A LIFE ON THE ROAD

Hi everyone, My name is Alessandro Tonello and I’m a huge sports fan. I did Alpine skiing competitively for many years. However, after the birth of my son I couldn’t pursue this sport any more, but thanks to a biker friend of mine I started riding bikes. I have to say that thanks to him a whole new world opened up to me, one where I always love to put myself to the test and try to overcome my limits. Anyway, ever since I was little, I always did lots of physical activities and even though I am 33 years old now I find it impossible to give up this lifestyle.

OMAR DI FELICE: THE “POLAR” ULTRACYCLIST

Hello, everyone, I am Omar Di Felice, and I am an “Ultracyclist” I fell in love with cycling when I was 13 years old. I was a big fan of Marco Pantani’s and admired his sports accomplishments, particularly his amazing victory at Aprica in 1994.
